PS4 Most Searched On Google Over Xbox One And Wii U

PS4 Most Searched On Google Over Xbox One And Wii U  News  Sony Nintendo Microsoft

In terms of Google searches, more people searched for the “PS4” over the “Xbox One” and “Wii U”.

This is according to Google trends collated for the first half of 2014 from January until July. On a worldwide basis, PS4 image searches dominated google’s search engines by a big margin. The Xbox One came in second place with the Wii U at a distant third. However, all consoles had a huge spike in the month of June. This is obviously thanks to all the new content being announced at E3.

In terms of news searches, PS4 was still on top but the Xbox One was closer this time around. Xbox One news searches actually overtook PS4 in the month of March. This could be largely thanks to the release of Titanfall that month. After March, PS4 news searches were still higher. Wii U news searches still stayed at third the whole way.

If you’re looking at YouTube searches, PS4 still came out on top for every month of 2014. Xbox One was again in second place for most of the year, except for in June. In June, Wii U searches exceeded Xbox One on YouTube. It could be because Nintendo announced a ton of great games at E3 including gameplay footage for a new The Legend of Zelda game.

Which console do you normally search for on Google and/or YouTube?

    Yeah….lets write an article about it ! This sony internet propaganda campaign is really getting funny. Do you think it could be all the ps4 freaks that still dont have a decent game to play so they sit on these articles posting anti xbox one comments ?

    • Shannon Novosel

      Says the freak who sits here and comments on this article

      • RobZ

        Occassional check for the comedy is very different than freakdom pony freak.

        • Shannon Novosel

          What ever you can tell yourself to justify being a hypocrite moron

          • Mattress

            You’re a classy fellow – you never actually post a message with your own opinion, just attack others for theirs.

          • Shannon Novosel

            I’m sorry you said you aren’t ever gonna respond to anything I say oh wait that was just a lie right oh wait your not a hypocrite

          • Mattress

            Just pointing out how much of a leech you are on this site…

          • Shannon Novosel

            I pointed out your a liar and a hypocrite do you have anything else to say or are you done trolling which according to you that never happens but here you are. Do I need your permission to be here oh great and mighty Mattress oh wait no I don’t. I get it the intelligence coming from your side isn’t that great.

          • Mattress

            And still no response to my first point about the fact that all you do is attack other people for their opinions but never actually say anything of use yourself. Typical Sony fanboy – you don’t like PS and gaming…you just hate everyone else who does.

          • Shannon Novosel

            Still no response about you being a lying hypocritical trolling xbot either. Oh great and mighty Mattress will you please tell me what I’m allowed to post figuring you seem to think your the owner of this website. Also if you can read I responded and said I do post on here just not too xbots my opinion I get it this thing called reading is hard on your side.

          • Shannon Novosel

            Oh and I do post my opinion on here not too xbots and trolls like yourself but too people like 111Alan who talk about games.

        • Guest

          Robz, go hate yourself somewhere else buddy.

    • themtheresecretgovernmentsnshi

      Internet propaganda campaign? Your one of those paranoids…..

      • Guest

        Agreed

    • M3thodFud

      Funny, considering the PS4’s lineup is just about as good as the Xbox Ones (in other words, they are both some what lacking). But what are you to expect, this is always the case for new console launches. I’m curious though, what freak are you for posting an anti-PS4 comment? PC, Xbox, or Wii U? And before I get accused of being a PS4 fan boy for defending it, which always seems to happen, I own all platforms, and love them all!

    • lol@butt hurt xbots

      wow maybe xbox just sucks and that’s the truth and all the news articles from all the news sites from all around the world since announcement are just f.

      Fking idiot, butt freaking hurt xbot GTFO.

      • 111AlaN111

        Or maybe lots of people are searching “My PS4 online went down, what to do?”, so the PS4 word appears there.

        • SisterSafetyPin

          lol, had to hard reset your Xbone lately?

          • 111AlaN111

            Why would I have to?

          • SisterSafetyPin

            It’s a known problem the multiple OS’s on the Xbox One are causing many people to have hard reset their console to get it to work. On the other hand, I haven’t heard of anyone having any major problems of the same with the PS4

          • 111AlaN111

            Yeah, except for PSN erasing PS4’s data. And the Dualshock 4’s stick covers get destroyed easily.

    • Blarg

      I know! This site is getting pretty desperate now lol

      Get mental help, forzafailever.

      Sad, sick in the head fanboy children. Stop spreading fanboy lies, FUD, and hatred and get help.

      You constantly LIE, blindly hate, and make things up to fuel your mentally ill hatred of a piece of plastic. Sad. You are sick in the head and need help.

      • Guest

        They need lies that is the only thing that gets people through the day, like Xbox One fans still believing that their console can still pull through as a powerful system because they believe that their system can be improved by its power. The hardware built in the system can’t become better and the only thing that could beat Sony, which is right now are “features”and “games”. Sony can also improve their “features” and “games” meaning that Sony has 100% chance in kicking Microsoft’s little butt, but they won’t listen. For the reason that they are blind from the truth because they want lies.

        Sadly, Robz is one of them. He needs a cure.

        • $113353191

          That’s forzafailever for you.

          • Guest

            I was just saying why people want lies and Xbox fans are the perfect example. You don’t have to respond to me. :)

      • Guest

        Yes I do believe they are pieces of shit plastic. That is why I go for a PS4. A PS4 is different and better in every way.

  • Guester

    It’s Facts First and his alter account Glorious PC Master Race obsessing over it all day and night, giving Sony the hits.

  • lol

    Is this really necessary? I think everyone knows PS4 is more popular.

    • lol is right

      It’s good to see that PS4 is solidly in 1st place. The place M$ wants to be but instead they are #3. LOL LAST PLACE

    • Brian678

      Not me and quite a few others these days from what i hear. Trashy companies forcing fans to have less choice and pay absurd prices for a worthless service certainly isnt what i consider “popular” ! But if you are interested in whats “popular” have at it pony boy. Have fun with that great playstation now service ! Better take out a loan so you can play Contra !

      • lol

        yeah it will obviously not be more popular amongst xbox fanboys like yourself. but overall it is still more popular selling a lot better and even in the US. It is always way ahead in the amazon’s best sellers. The news showed how it is more popular on google and youtube. I won’t even talk about the rest of the world where PS is clearly king.

        Maybe this topic is useful for people like you who are in denial.

        • ALightningBoldt

          Just because it has sold more does not mean all of those ppl are happy with their purchase. From my personal experience, my friends with xb1s are very happy with their purchase. My friends with PS4s are less happy.

        • Guest

          You need to stop spreading your unwanted comments.

          • $113353191

            Mods will decide if a comment is unwanted.

          • Guest

            Ok

  • Done with PS4

    Agreed…It is likely the most googled since people are posting what a complete joke PS Now is. Go ahead and google “PSnow is a trainwreck” and see what ps4 owners think of sonys bright idea. Great company…and now they have made an enemy out of the largest publisher in the industry…EA. They arent making decisions regarding best value for me anymore…headed to xbox one.

    • lol

      Another one of those xbox fanboys claiming to have owned a PS4.
      It’s becoming embarrassing and sad that xbox fanboys are obliged to do this to try to influence people’s opinions.

      • ALightningBoldt

        I know two people with ps4s. Both of them have told me they are disappointed in Sony right now. And these are two self proclaimed Sony fanboys. I’m going to trust two people I know and like over any sales figures, Google searches, or internet comments. Waiting on the PS4 for now

        Now I see who actually needs mental help.

  • The PC Master Race

    After the new Nvidia cards it will soon be “How to sell your PS4” and “How to build a PC”.

  • 111AlaN111

    Who cares for this? Fanboys search for jokes of the console they don’t like, people want to see news about problems with the PS4/X1.

    • $113353191

      Spin that damage control

    • Guest

      I agree, “Once AGAIN”

  • Dennis

    Ok, lets prove a point: All of us search for “attack of the fanboy” for the next month – see what happens. Enough of a readership here to sway? :P

    • Guest

      How about, no. Is no a good answer for you?

  • Superman22223333444

    I play Guilty Gear Xrd, The Last of Us, Shadow of Mordor, Resident Evil Remastered, The Evil Within, and Black Flag. So much for “no games”….
